Directed by Lloyd Bacon | 1933

With Warner Baxter, George Brent, Bebe Daniels, Ruby Keeler, Dick Powell, Ginger Rogers

“Modern musicals start here.”
—The New Yorker

Melding escapist Busby Berkeley dance sequences with relatable themes of economic hardship, this Depression-era hit introduced a new kind of musical to American audiences. Attempting to fend off a second nervous breakdown, director Julian Marsh (Baxter) puts all of his energy into a new musical comedy. But when his star (Daniels) hurts her ankle the day before opening night, Marsh must teach show business novice Peggy (Keeler) the entire show in only a few hours in a fantastic story of the artistic labor behind showbiz glamor.
